Iran successfully test fires new generation of a ballistic, laser-guided missiles

TEHRAN: Iran has successfully test-fired a new generation of a ballistic missile and a laser-guided missile, the Iranian defense minister said.

   

The two missiles were fired on the eve of the 35th anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

“The new generation of long-range ground-to-ground ballistic missile with a fragmentation warhead and the laser-guided air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missile dubbed Bina (Sighted) have been successfully test fired,” Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said.

The Iranian defense minister said that the new domestically-designed and indigenous ballistic missile can “evade the enemy missile defense systems” and can “destroy multiple targets.” He also noted that the Bina laser-guided missile can be fired from the ground or from above.

“This missile is capable of striking important targets such as bridges, tanks and the enemy command centers with great precision,” Dehqan said.
